Orlando Magic (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/nba/teams/magic) draft pick J.J. Redick pleaded guilty Monday to drunken driving charges and received a one-year sentence of unsupervised probation.

The former Duke basketball star also received a 60-day suspended license in North Carolina, $410 in fees and court costs and must perform 24 hours of community service, according to Candy Clark, administrative assistant to District Attorney Mike Nifong.

District Court Judge Richard Chaney agreed to allow Redick, a first-round pick of the Magic, to serve his community service in Florida. Redick was last season's Associated Press player of the year.

He appeared in Durham County traffic court with his lawyer Donald Beskind, who could not be reached for comment after the hearing.

Redick was arrested after 1 a.m. on June 13 when he made an illegal U-turn after approaching a license check point near the Duke campus, police said.

He pulled into a parking lot of an apartment complex after police pursued him.
The arresting officer wrote in his report that Redick had "very glassy eyes, strong odor of alcohol coming from breath." He had a blood-alcohol level of 0.11 percent. The legal limit for drivers in North Carolina is 0.08.
